CROCK POT SUMMER SQUASH SOUP

I love soup and even in the hot summer heat, I will eat soup for lunch or dinner.  I am so sick of the heat already.   I also love anything crock pot, so this tasty treat works well.

Squash season is in gear and if you have a garden you are probably looking to use up all the squash you have growing in your garden. If you don’t have a garden but love squash you will love this Summer Squash Soup recipe. You can use a combination of yellow long neck squash and zucchini squash or just one.

This crock pot Summer Squash Soup recipe will feed two adults with a small about left over.  Depending on how large of a serving you are serving. This Summer Squash soup recipe makes about 4 cups of soup.  So when wanting to make for a larger group just double or triple, whatever works for you.  I am doing low carb this Summer and this works great!  With low carb you can always sprinkle crumbled bacon, add onions, or sprinkle cheese on top.  So use your imagination, and let us know what you added.
